  4. Mission Time - Complete within 09:45.

You need to retrieve something valuable from a plane. Using an incredibly powerful gun.

Floor It

When chasing the plane on the dirt bike (the Sanchez) you just need to keep your foot pressed on the accelerator. The chase is a long one and there are enough straight lines to work with to gain this challenge.

Glued To The Seat

The Sanchez is quite good at dodging and weaving between things and it is perfect for off-road so you can get away with some big corners. It is quite pacey but is good at handling so just keep an eye out for the plane, and map your best route to it. Keep your eyes well ahead so you can see any obstacles. You’ll have to do some crazy jumps but don’t panic, just keep going.

(1 of 2) Shoot the plane when the square is in the position shown on the picture,

Shoot the plane when the square is in the position shown on the picture, (left), then dodge any obstacles whilst you chase the plane (right)

One Two Three

To finish this challenge, you need to zoom right in with the rifle and target the large red square. The game has already calculated wind direction and the speed of the plane so just put the crosshairs right in the middle of the red square. You must do this three times and cannot miss a shot.

Mission Time

If you are able to take out the plane in the 3 shots and don’t have crashes on the Sanchez, which you will be aiming for anyway, then this time is well within the limits.
